Warden[edit]

Who is the "warden of the yeomanry" (from the article on Praise-God Barebone)? --CopperKettle 00:30, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

Question?[edit]

The text on April 12, 2012 reads: "The word 'yeoman' refers to small farmers who owned the land they cultivated as opposed to peasants, but the officers were drawn from the nobility or the landed gentry, and many of the men were their tenants." Assuming "men" in the sentence refers to yeomen, how could yeomen own the land they cultivate yet be tenants of the gentry? The sentence is confusing to the reader. I thought a knowledgeable editor could make the sentence clearer.04:33, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

I made a minor edit to make the sentence clearer. Please look over my small revision. Iss246 (talk) 14:34, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
